Language: English . Brand New Book. This book is a revision and extension of my 1995 Sourcebook of Control Systems Engineering. Because of the extensions and other modifications, it has been retitled Handbook of Control Systems Engineering, which it is intended to be for its prime audience: advanced undergraduate students, beginning graduate students, and practising engineers needing an understandable review of the field or recent developments which may prove useful. There are several differences between this edition and the first. * Two new chapters on aspects of nonlinear systems have been incorporated. In the first of these, selected material for nonlinear systems is concentrated on four aspects: showing the value of certain linear controllers, arguing the suitability of algebraic linearization, reviewing the semi-classical methods of harmonic balance, and introducing the nonlinear change of variable technique known as feedback linearization. In the second chapter, the topic of variable structure control, often with sliding mode, is introduced. * Another new chapter introduces discrete event systems, including several approaches to their analysis. * The chapters on robust control and intelligent control have been extensively revised. * Modest revisions and extensions have also been made to other chapters, often to incorporate extensions to nonlinear systems.

Synopsis :

This book is a revision and extension of the author's 1995 Sourcebook of Control Systems Engineering. Because of the extensions and other modifications, it has been re-titled Handbook of Control Systems Engineering, which it is intended to be for its prime audience: advanced undergraduate students, beginning graduate students, and practicing engineers needing an understandable review of the field or recent developments which may prove useful.
New in This Edition.
  • Two new chapters on aspects of nonlinear systems have been incorporated. In the first of these, selected material for nonlinear systems is concentrated on four aspects: showing the value of certain linear controllers, arguing the suitability of algebraic linearization, reviewing the semi-classical methods of harmonic balance, and introducing the nonlinear change of variable technique known as feedback linearization. In the second new chapter, the topic of variable structure control, often with sliding mode, is introduced.
  • A third chapter introduces discrete event systems, including several approaches to their analysis.
  • The chapters on robust control and intelligent control have been extensively revised.
  • Modest revisions and extensions have also been made to other chapters, often to incorporate extensions to nonlinear systems.
  • Many references have been updated to more recent books, although old standards are still cited. Also, some of the advances in computer and communications technology are reflected.
  • The index has been revised and expanded.
The structure of the book is as in the first edition. Briefly, the aim is to present the topics in a fairly modular manner with certain main groupings.
  • The first several chapters are concerned with the hardware and software of the control task as well as systems engineering associated with the selection of appropriate components.
  • The next chapters look at the sources and representations of the mathematical models used in the theory.
  • A number of chapters then are concerned with standard classical or transform domain material as is usually presented in a first level university course, including stability theory, root locus diagrams, and Bode plots.
  • The next group of chapters concerns the standard modern or state space material usually met in a second level course. Included here are observers, pole placement, and optimal control.
  • Overlapping into usual graduate level courses are the next several chapters on more advanced optimal control, Kalman filtering, system identification, and standard adaptive control.
  • The final chapters introduce more advanced, research level subjects. Here are selected topics in nonlinear control, intelligent control, robust control, and discrete event systems.
The topics covered are intended to represent the mainstream of control systems teaching. Examples are presented to illustrate the computability of the theory presented.
Handbook of Controls Systems Engineering, Second Edition is suitable as a secondary text for upper level undergraduate students, beginning graduate students, and as a reference for researchers and practitioners in industry.
